Comfortable, Memes, and Sorry: How To Foam Roll For IT Band Syndrome @dr.jacob en quaddoc WHAT FOAM ROLLING ACTUALLY DOES Wow! There were over 1600 comments on last night's IT band post! Thank you guys for coming through with the engagement.๐Ÿ™โค From reading through all of those, I think we need to talk a bit about self myofascial release, aka foam rolling as demonstrated here by @quaddoc. . The name is a misnomer. We aren't really "releasing" anything. In fact it takes about 2000 pounds of force to stretch and deform fascia. So that little roller is not going to lengthen and loosen it.๐Ÿ™… Likewise, we can't break up fascial adhesions. Not by hand, tool, or PVC pipe. We just can't generate enough force. . So foam rolling does not create physical change in your tissues. Then what does it do?๐Ÿ˜• . It works by altering the input to your nervous system. When you roll over your muscles, you send an โšกinput to your brain that then sends a signal back to give a temporary relaxation. It also dampens pain signals temporarily which is why you feel better for a little bit afterwards. . This has a few implications for us. ๐Ÿ”นYou don't have to destroy your muscles. Provide just enough input to get an effect. ๐Ÿ”นYou don't need to roll for an hour. 30 seconds to a minute is enough. ๐Ÿ”นSince we aren't making physical change, rolling isn't going to prevent injury. It just helps reduce the perception of tightness. ๐Ÿ”นThis is all temporary. If you don't fix the underlying cause as to why you feel tight, nothing will change. So use the roller for what it is. It can be a great tool to make you more comfortable while you work on the real issues. Tomorrow we dive into movement and start making some real long term change. Tag a friend who likes to foam roll and share the wealth! . MyodetoxOrlando Myodetox PS...Sorry for talking so fast. I had to speed up the video a little to get it in the time cap.๐Ÿ˜…
